BSON::String(3pm) User Contributed Perl Documentation BSON::String(3pm)

NAME

BSON::String - BSON type wrapper for strings

VERSION

version v1.4.0

SYNOPSIS

    use BSON::Types ':all';
    bson_string( $string );

DESCRIPTION

This module provides a BSON type wrapper for a string value.
Since Perl does not distinguish between numbers and strings, this module provides an explicit string type for a scalar value.

ATTRIBUTES

value

A scalar value, which will be stringified during construction. The default is the empty string.

METHODS

TO_JSON

Returns value as a string.

OVERLOADING

The stringification operator ("") is overloaded to return the "value", the full "minimal set" of overloaded operations is provided (per overload documentation) and fallback overloading is enabled.
